UNSCENTED CALENDULA BABY SOAP

Steep 115g dried or semi-dried calendula flowers (pot marigold) in 115ml olive oil in a jar, sealed, for two to three weeks, then strain oil. A faster method is to steep dried calendula flowers in water and use strained infusion in place of all or part of the water called for in the recipe (Or combine both methods). This makes very mild baby soap.

COMFREY AND ALOE VERA SOAP

The comfrey root gives the soap a special healing, soothing quality as well as a beautiful dark violet colour. Collect and dry enough comfrey roots to produce 110g ounces of powder (about a 1 foot root). Roots must be thoroughly dry before you pulverize them in a food processor.

· 60g lavender oil · rosemary oil · aloe extract.

· 110g comfrey root powder.

· 1 quantity basic soap mixture.

· 120g rosemary oil.

· 55h each powdered dill weed and rosemary.


GENTLEMAN FARMER SOAP

The cornmeal in this soap gives it a rough texture, perfect for scrubbing. Follow the general instructions for making the soap mixture, then blend 2 cups of the soap mixture with the cornmeal and whip it with a wire whisk to remove lumps. Return this mixture to the soap kettle and stir in the essential oils before pouring the soap into mould.

· 1 quantity basic soap mixture.

· 110g ground cornmeal.

· 90g lemongrass oil.

· 30g cedar wood oil.


MR SPICY SHAVING SOAP

This shaving soap has a high percentage of cinnamon oil, which stimulates and lifts the beard for a close shave. This soap is tricky to make as the cinnamon oil must be dribbled in quickly while stirring or it will streak the soap. This soap also thickens unusually fast, so be ready to pour it into the mould as soon as you’ve stirred in the oil and the optional ground cinnamon.

· 1 quantity basic soap mixture· 120g cinnamon oil· 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (optional) Soft Herbal Soap using dry herbs:

For use in baths or washing hands.

1 1/2 cups dried Herbs1 1/2 quarts water2 cups shredded pure soap (like Ivory)1/2 cup boraxIn an enamel saucepan, combine the Herbs and water. Bring to a full boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes to release the oils of the Herbs.

Re-heat slowly and add the shredded soap and borax. Stir while adding the last two ingredients. soap recipesBoil gently for about 3 minutes. Cool. Pour the soap into covered containers of your choice. For the strongest aroma; use Herbs like rosemary, lavender & thyme. The oils from these Herbs seem to linger on your skin longer. I like to make these soaps into tiny soaps shaped like different things…….circles, squared, seashells. Stuff like that. I then tie them up into coloured netting and decorate with ribbon and silk flowers and give as gifts. They can be used to wash with or just as sachets. (A simple way of doing this is using ice cube trays and filling the 1/3 full only. Let them set, then just simply twist and pop them out.) Another way of using these soaps for gift giving is to get smaller (or larger) sized mason jars with the screw on lids. Fill the jar with little shapes of herbal soaps , close lid, and decorate with ribbon and silk flowers. The best gift of all is the one you present to yourself when you use this herbal soap. ENJOY!

My passion for the craft brings me to post more topics you might find of interest.

What is Heathenism?

The Pagan Revival began in the 1960s. It saw the resurgence of the pre-Christian religions of Europe and the Middle East. Modern Paganism includes the revived Mystery Schools of the Hellenic world, the Celtic religions of ancient Europe, Ireland and Scotland, and the European religion known as Wicca.

On the edges of Paganism came the recovery of Norse, German and Anglo-Saxon beliefs. Modern Pagans tried to fit them within their own format. Others decided to take the Germanic beliefs on their own merits, exclusive of precedents set by modern Pagans. The result is a distinct religion which is very different in purpose, flavour and structure from the ways of the modern Pagan community. To distinguish itself from conventional Paganism, the term A Heathenism was adopted. Though Heathenism is indeed a Pagan religion, it is distinct as a unique entity under the larger Pagan umbrella.
There have been several names coined for various Heathen groups: Hedenskap, Asatru, Odinism, Thorism, Theod, Troth, Der Urglaawe, etc. Most of these terms relate to specific branches of Heathenism. The term that covers all of them is Heathenism. Though each branch is itself distinct, all have much in common.

When discussing religion, most folks anticipate questions such as what do you believe?” People are ill-prepared for the question: What will your belief do for me? Seeing a bunch of people worshipping old Norse Gods might look more like a medieval re-enactment or an occult ceremony to others. It is more important that people know what Heathenism does for us. In actual practice, the rites and ceremonies are a minor thing compared to living our beliefs every day.
Keep in mind that Heathenism is indeed a powerful way of life. The ancient Saxons and Norsemen would rather be executed than convert! Obviously Heathenism offered them something for
which it was worth living and dying.
The basic premise of the Heathen is that everything spiritual is also practical. The goal of life is progress of the individual, the family and mankind. In this quest, there can be no cross purposes pitting spiritual requirements against real world necessity. Both work together for the betterment of all.
Those familiar with the other religions of these times will find Heathenism very different. Concepts common to conventional religions find no counterpart in Heathen belief. We are unbound by many of the strictures which are part and parcel of the major religions of this time.
We are bound by principles which guide us. These include honest, responsibility, fairness and generosity. Our principles encourage us to deal fairly with all, to do our best and to live a life that makes a difference. There are no rules behind which to hide, so as to excuse doing the minimum. We are urged to do our best and be our best.


There is a perception in the pagan community

More specifically in the witchcraft community, that in order to perform (magic) a certain alignment must occur. All of the correspondences need to be correct, colours, herbs, days, clock hours, and astrological read-outs. Not always all of them, but some of them need to be lined up and done right.
We do our research and make sure our intent is pure and as long as the personal gain is for a good reason…. Or at least not bad enough that we don’t mind paying for it… well, we do what we will and try our best to not garner TOO much bad karma.

Sound about right?

But somewhere along the way the creativity or to someone like ME the very essence of what the craft was has been, is lost. The craft of the wise, the craft of the knowing, has dissipated into the craft of the (need to know). The books that are on the shelves teach only the view of the author, and always the regurgitated spewing of the teacher before. They teach us how to get for ourselves but not how to BE ourselves.

The creativity in the craft is to know when it is time to step away from the ugity bugity, and when to step into the knowing. Step one on the path is to know yourself. Experience… yourself.

You don’t need anything special to start this creative journey. There are no books to buy, no tools to make or garments to sew. You simply need to sit with yourself in the quiet. Pay attention to yourself. Listen to your thoughts. Speak when you need to speak. Eat when you need to eat. Ask for what you need to ask for.
Work, sleep and go to the bathroom when you need to. But start really paying attention to who YOU are. And when you find that (need) to cast a spell, don’t run to your witchy cupboard or to the internet or your BOS… instead, sit in the quiet with yourself first, and see if you can’t bring the creativity back to the craft by listening for the solution to what vexes you…. WITHIN you….first.


Below is a little spell that may help you in your studies:

Study Spell

The first weeks of school are always the best to start working on a long-term study spell that can help you throughout the semester as well as for your finals and papers. You may not want to think about studying, with the sun shining through bright autumnal leaves, but it’s best to begin focusing on a long-term project like this one now, rather than panicking a day before your final exam! Make the following potion:

1 part Bay oil (for wisdom)
1 part Lily of the Valley oil (to reduce anxiety)
1 part Spearmint oil (for memory)
3 drops Cinnamon (for success)

You have a choice: if you use fragrance or perfume oils, blend them as is. If you use essential oils, blend them in base oil such as grapeseed or almond oil, and make a ten percent solution (i.e., for every drop of Bay, use ten drops of base oil, etc.)

Blend it in a bottle large enough to contain a small Citrine stone (for creativity and mental work). Hold the stone in one hand, the oil bottle in the other, and chant:

Sarasvati, goddess of learning,
Bless these with your power.
Grant me the stamina to devote myself
To take in this knowledge and apply it
Intelligently, and with wisdom.
As I say, so it is done!

Empower the stone and the oil by pouring your feelings of confidence and academic success into them. Stop when you feel that you have filled them as much as possible; they might tingle, or feel warm to you. Open the oil bottle and slip the citrine chip inside.

Now that you’ve got it, what do you do with it?

Carry it with you to class, and keep it by you while you study. Before class starts, or as you sit down to read or work, open the bottle and breathe in the scent of the oils. Feel yourself relax and fill with confidence; know that your mind is alert and ready to receive the information about to be passed to you.
For papers, rub a tiny drop of the oil on your hands, then handle the paper and give it to your teacher. For exams, rub a drop of the oil into your pen or pencil (better do two, in case the first breaks or runs out!), and put a tiny drop in the centre of your forehead (your third eye, seat of wisdom).
If you tense up or feel yourself start to panic, lift your pen to your nose and breathe in. Relax, and finish your exam with confidence!

Please note: No magic can ever substitute for work in the mundane world. This potion is designed to aid you in study, not to replace it entirely!

One of the most influential factors is the presence of the Moon Phase. In this particular point, as a beginner spell caster, you should always know the following meaning of variations and difference of the moon phase. As a matter of fact, this moon phase will always be the base or fundamental of your real magic spells for the reason that you can determine already if your magic will be effective or a fail one. Furthermore, here are some of the details that are being covered by the moon phases.

The new moon represents the best time of casting the spells. For your information, the new moon contributes for the successful result of the real magic spells.

There is no bible of witchcraft there are however laws that they abide by. The Wiccan Rede is advice that is followed by those practicing witchcraft, it is a poem that is similar to following the “golden rule.” There are other verses of witchcraft that are followed; one is the three-fold law. This law basically states that the world is of equal balance.
It states that every action creates energy and this energy must eventually return to its source. Simply put it states that every action you take comes back to you with 3 times the energy you put into it. Witches believe in karma, if you perform good deeds, good things will happen to you, and if you do harm, then bad things will happen to you. Witchcraft is a religion of spiritual qualities, believing in living in harmony with nature.

Once reading the laws and beliefs of witchcraft and deciding it is a journey you would like to take beginning witchcraft is quite simple yet someone complex.
In the past a person who would like to begin witchcraft would seek out a coven. A group of fellow worshippers who would teach them everything they needed to know about the art of witchcraft. Today that is not only unnecessary, it is also quite difficult. Finding a coven that is safe can prove to be difficult, it is not like you can look up area witches in the yellow pages. If you are truly interested in becoming a witch you should start by reading books about witchcraft.

You need to understand fully what they believe and why. This is very important before starting your individual quest to becoming involved in witchcraft.

In order for your spiritual path to be pure you must open up your mind to the beliefs of witchcraft. Reading about the history and becoming extremely knowledgeable about the faith will lead to your success as a beginning witch.

Once you have learned about beginner witchcraft, casting your first circle is quite simple. You start by clearing out a space that you consider sacred.
You then metaphysically clean the space; you may want to use a broom or a sweeping motion to clear the space of unwanted attributes.
A circle is similar to meditation. You must clear your mind of everything and focus solely on casting the circle. Once your mind is clear you begin pointing your casting tool, which can simply be your finger. You must feel the divine energy take over. Then the casting may begin. Slowly start drawing the circle.
It does not have to be perfect as it will always end up that way no matter what. The key is complete focus. Once you walk the perimeter of your space creating the circle the energy will connect where you began and become whole. The purpose of the circle is to draw energy, thus a space to create your magic.
As a beginner learning to cast the circle is the most important thing, and then you can move on to spells.


White magic love spells

White magic love spells are probably the most popular of all types of real magic spells.

White Magic

White magic is not of any particular tradition. It is more of a general philosophy towards magic than anything else. The philosophy of white magic is simply this: “magic is to heal and to help, not to harm and to create hardships”.

Regardless of how a spell sounds or is cast or what it can do, every spell is white magic if it has good intentions and does no harm. Therefore love spells falls under white magic because, quite simply, they help people to fall happily in love and that’s definitely a good and wonderful thing!

Love spells

Love spells work differently for different spell casters, witches and wizards. The spells, rites and rituals may be performed according to different old cultural traditions, ancestry or personal preferences or style.

It is hard to categorize real magic spells and the people that cast them. They may include chants and prayers, talismans, charms, pendants, drawings, writings, symbols and maybe even dances under the moonlight. All these things can be part of a white magic spell.

While love spells may be different in terms of how exactly they are cast, they are all very similar in the ways in which they attempt to produce their effects.
They all want to bring happy, long lasting and all-encompassing love to the people involved in the spell – both the caster and the subject of the spell.

Effects

However, even if you cast your spell perfectly not all the realised effects can be called a success. Sometimes, the actual effects are totally in contrast to what was intended.

The reasons are as varied as the persons involved and their particular situations. A boyfriend you thought you loved may not be your true love after all – in casting the spell you will reveal his true intentions and so the magic will show you he’s not right for you. The girl you are attracted to may already have her own partner, and the spell will help you to move on from her and find someone else, and so on.

Because these spells are energised by powerful and wise spirits, they find clever ways to change the effects of these spells to keep you safe and help you on your path to eventual success.

In the end love spells will give you what you really need, and not just the things you directly ask for.

Dear Lord,
So far I’ve done all right.
I haven’t gossipped,
haven’t lost my temper,
haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent.

I’m going to get out of bed.
And from then on,
I’m going to need a lot more help.

Angels Look Like & If You Come Across An Angel

Angels Look Like

Angels Look Like & If You Come Across An Angel, by authors unknown to me

WHAT DO ANGELS LOOK LIKE

Angels Look Like“Like the little old lady who returned
your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver who told you that your eyes
light up the world, when you smile.
Like the small child who showed you
the wonder in simple things.
Like the poor man who offered to
share his lunch with you.
Like the rich man who showed you that it
really is all possible, if only you believe.
Like the stranger who just happened to come along,
when you had lost your way.
Like the friend who touched your heart
when you didn’t think you had one to touch.
Angels come in all sizes and shapes
all ages and skin types & colors.
Some with freckles, some with dimples
some with wrinkles, some without.
They come disguised as friends, enemies
nurses, teachers, students, lovers and fools.
They don’t take life too seriously
they travel light.
They leave no forwarding address
they ask nothing in return.
They wear sneakers with gossamer wings
they get a deal on dry cleaning.
They are hard to find when your eyes are closed
but they are everywhere you look
when you choose to see.


IF YOU COME ACROSS AN ANGEL

Angels Look LikeEvery day, the world around us
real-life angels are doing the things they do….
and bringing more smiles
to the world around them…
Real-life angels build bridges instead of walls.
They don’t play hide-and-seek with the truth
they do whatever they can to help you.
Real-life angels understand difficulties
and always give the benefit of the doubt.
They don’t hold others up to the standards
they can’t live by themselves.
Real-life angels are what “inner beauty” is all about.
Real-life angels don’t hold things against you;
the only thing they hold…is YOU!!!
They take your hand in theirs
when you could use a little reassurance.
They walk beside you when you could do with a little guidance
and direction in your life.
And they support you in your attempts
to do what is right.
Real-life angels multiply your smiles
and add to your integrity.
They make you feel like Angels Look Like
“Hey,I really am somebody who matters.”
Then they quietly prove to you how beautiful
and true that feeling really is.

If you come across an angel like this
you are one of the luckiest people of all.
If someone in your life is wonderfully like an angel to you
it’s important to let them know…
It’s the nicest compliment you could ever give…
in all the days of you life
and in all the years that you live.
